    I did it 9 years ago, from ADN, and MSN- and my best advice is coffee, 3 alarm clocks, and the rest I plead the 5th- but it can be done.

    I would also have to give TONS of credit to my wife who also worked 40 hour weeks going to get her AS-MSW. I couldn't have done it without her, and she didn't even laugh at me when she caught me in the shower with my socks on before I realized it.

    Ok,

    As an ER Coordinator, I have seen a few things off in interviews, but DEAR GOD, who hurt you so?

    It almost sounds like a vent!

    I always just feel sorry for the single mom in jeans who would be wearing dress pants if she could have afforded them, if I had put up a "red flag" I would have turned down one heck of a ER Tech, who is now a ER RN, One of "OUR," not "My" best on staff.

    These judgemental posts about how I am sooooooo much better than you because I follow the book to a "T," and "conform to the upper-crust of this Profession" sound so shallow and "God-complex" like.

    Some of the greatest minds out there have hair just like Einstien, or decided to get a tattoo, and I cannot begin to imagine how you differentiate on your patient care according to how they are dressed-or look.

    I think you missed your calling for cosmotologist, or a prissy hair dresser!

    Otherwise, I hope you work in a private, small, uptown hospital where you won't be ashamed by Wrangler wearing blue collar workers, but doubt that since you had to post a vent about hair washing, denim, and piercings!

    Old School is Okay, but Compassion, Understanding, and Empathy are still character traits that I would rather see than starch constipated china doll nurses!

    Thanks!

    I agree, there is enough grief and pain in one lifetime to prevent the invitation of anymore- if you've been sober without any relapse issues for greater than 5 years and they don't know it, that's a blessing! Count it as one- and lay low

    You see, time passed means nothing really from their perspective. To them, an addict is a pickle. A pickle once was a cucumber- but no matter what you do, it's never going back to being a cucumber again. You and me are "pickles." We are just clean pickles that can be pickled again anytime. You are ahead of the game if they see you as a "cucumber" still- I wouldn't go looking for dill, vinegar, and a mason jar(sorry, terrible analogy).

    That is a ghost that can haunt your career and lifestyle more than you ever imagined if the BON does not already know your past. I live in that very real haunted present- even with near 5 years clean, and no diversion history or occupational related incidences.

    I hope this wasn't what the Mayans were seeing, Lol

    I know of 6 hospitals on total lockdown around here because of the high levels of this "crud." They allow no visitors, and mask/glove cart is at both entrances where I work.

    Doctors office had this sign, "If you are experiencing Nausea, Vomiting, and Diarrhea, please knock on our side door, and a staff member will buzz you in. Please do not enter waiting area."

    I was toooooo sick to make it to a doctor, but I applaud those who could hold it in long enough to make it.

    I found sitting on the toilet with a 3 gallon bucket in my lap the best treatment for like 1/2 an eternity

    I knew I was better when I finally got to my knees to take small sips from the lavatory sink.

    I have found a chicken wing bone in a fat fold of a 560lb women tonight, she said,"gah, I am surprised, the cat must have hid that there. Now don't get me wrong- I'm a dog person, but do cats hide stuff??? I hope everyone has eaten supper Also, I found a small cat toy- so she may have a "unique" cat? Wuh, I kept searching for the dead kitten because the skin-on-skin inflammation was something akin to death, Vintage Cheddar, Crusty Butt, and Body Odor center, with a hint of Cabbage. I cleaned well with 4 PCTs holding up the belly, and then I left the patient to be breaded by the "Powder Puff" girls

    *Vegimite is that canned stuff that aussies love to eat on bread as a spread. I think it is Yeast based, but not sure.

    playing devil's advocate, since the cute little lulliby bells play hospital wide for a birth,. . .

    I suggest we have a heavy organ play overhead when someone makes the ultimate check-out.

    Once heavily burdened with no where else to turn and 2 patients waiting to use the bathroom, I opened the door, . .swallowed, and asked. .

    "Mrs. XXXXX Can I borrow your bedside commode, I promise I will clean it really good when I get finished with it."

    "Yeah Hun, But your welcomed to use my bathroom, you'd have alot more privacy in there."

    If a man speaks in the middle of a forest, and no women is there to hear him, is he still wrong?
